ALLY Wines is an online wine platform providing access to some of the most thoughtful winemakers in the United States.  We select and choose partners who seek quality over acclaim. Winemakers who use their freedom from appellation and varietal influence to create wines based purely on instinct, quality and beauty. Focusing on California, Oregon, Washington and New York, ALLY Wines shares superior wines that are emerging from these regions. Wines representative not of stereotypes or a preconceived American style, but unique to their area in the United States, and the world.  ALLY was created to showcase some of the world's most innovative wines.  All partners and wines we work with are from the United States and while the names may be lesser known on a global stage, they are heralded for their unique styles and expressive varietal from distinctive places.

Bat-and-Bottle-Stacked-Cirle-blue-pink.p

Bat and Bottle are specialist importers of Italian wine: Winner of 2021 Decanter Retailer Awards "Best Italian Wine Merchant" and also runner-up "Best Subscription Wine Club."

 
A treasure chest for those who delight in the unusual, we seek out wines made by individuals who cherish history, tradition and the unique character of their terroir. We are a husband and wife team who try to be serious when buying, but never too serious when selling. We hope you enjoy our wine selection and maybe even become a member of our very special Wine Club that enables us to bring these authentic, individual, beautiful wines into the UK. We look forward to meeting you in person in the Oxford Union Debating Chamber this September.

Babylonstoren is one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms, dating back to 1692. It has a fruit and vegetable garden of beauty and diversity, unique accommodation, fine food and a sense of wellbeing. Our wines are produced in a state-of-the-art winery and are made to showcase the soils and climate where its grapes are grown. We have 88 hectares under vine and produce 13 different grape varieties with our highest vines – pinot noir and chardonnay – lying against Simonsberg at some 600 metres above sea level.

Our wines are best exemplified by the Babylonstoren logo, which consists of the pipe (representing the farmer), the flower (representing the garden) and the bird (representing nature). It is a combination of the very essence of Babylonstoren – keeping things simple and as true to the earth as possible. "It is this that we strive to achieve in our wine," says Charl Coetzee. "Truth to the area we are situated in on the slopes of Simonsberg, and simplicity by making elegant and balanced wines as natural as possible."

Lyme Bay Winery logotype-02[4].jpg

Lyme Bay Winery likes to do things a little differently. They’re one of very few UK wineries that work with growers rather than managing their own vineyards. The incredible sites chosen for the best quality fruit are located all over the country, so the LBW winemakers always have access to different grape varieties that grow better on different soils and in different microclimates. They pick the best of the best for all of their wines; still, sparkling and red. This means you always get the best wines from the best grapes from the best vineyards.

The Tiwari House winery is situated in the volcanic hills of Lake Balaton, Hungary. The old vines that grow around the winery take full advantage of the volcanic minerals in the basalt soils. The sun reflecting off the lake and the hills blocking the cold north and west winds create a unique climate that is humid, cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. On any typical summer and early autumn day, the vineyards are shrouded by fog until mid-morning allowing for balanced ripening of the grapes which protects the delicate fruit flavours. The quality viticulture, combined with the winemaking passion and skills of Tiwari House, produces outstanding, award winning, sparkling wines that have established the perfect relationship with the rhythm of nature. All our wines are vintage, 100% natural, vegan and use grapes grown organically.
